Location: Riverside, California
I moved into my first apartment with just myself and Sherman Graham Brown, my rescue pup. It is simply the best. Everything is pretty bargain friendly, things I already had, thrifted, ikea or DIY'd. My style is mid century modern / 70's colors.
I chose this apartment because I felt really safe in the complex, staff treated me well and it was affordable as well. My patio is much larger than the average apartment patio and even though it is a studio apartment, I still have a bedroom and dining room area that I use for an office / desk, two closets and a full kitchen. Basically it's a one bedroom apartment without a wall. My favorite thing has gotta be the couch, I mean come on. This was a major find on San Diego's craigslist, perfect condition mid century 7 foot couch. I also love my DIY'd coffee cup rack. While having the cozy warm colors from the 70's, I also tried to keep it fresh and white.
